Coming to the VAG: LEONARDO DA VINCI: THE MECHANICS OF MAN

This in the from VAG – the show opens this Saturday.

Leonardo da Vinci was the quintessential Renaissance man. He explored the world with an unrivalled spirit of curiosity, making discoveries centuries ahead of his time. Leonardo appears to have collaborated with the University of Pavia to participate in dissections of corpses, which in the 16th century were rarely performed. The resulting group of drawings, Leonardo’s 1510 masterwork Anatomical Manuscript A, are presented in their entirety for the first time. This exceptional body of work remains, to this day, one of history’s greatest triumphs of drawing and scientific inquiry.
